Levy, Frank; Murnane, Richard J.; Levy, Frank
National Tax Journal, v54 n2 p401-15 Jun 2001
Review of standards-based education reform suggests that closing the achievement gap for children of color is more difficult than anticipated. There should be no high stakes until assessments are aligned with desired skills. Schools are accountable but must be given resources and authority. Mixed systems for assessing standardizable and nonstandardizable skills are challenging but necessary. (Contains 38 references.) (JOW)
